Since Taiwan is highly exposed to natural disasters, it is crucial to set up a remote monitoring system using sensor. Public and private sectors need to work together to collect big data collected from past disaster damages, and utilize the smart disaster prevention technologies, such as cloud analysis, monitoring network, low-power-consumption long-distance transmission to communicate efficiently among government agencies, enterprises and citizens easier and faster.
Big data analysis of traffic flow and telecommunication flow is helpful to plan the smart transportation system. For example, we can provide logistics companies with real time messages and plan the best routes to avoid the disaster area for the safety of workers.
Introducing GIS system to analyze the potential of power generation in different areas can help making best decisions. Taking solar energy generation as an example, using the roofs of local communities or the big power plants invested by private sectors we can combine the use of GIS,
How can we make the construction procedures smarter? We can integrate automatic operation, indoor positioning systems, BIM and the supply chain management. We can also use robots and sensors at the con- struction sites, and ICT investigation and exploration particularly can be applied for those sites in the high risk of accidents to ensure the safety. Drones can be used to create high quality maps and 3D terrain data by cloud-based high-speed calculation and better planning for construction to reduce the human mistakes.
The risk of water shortage is a global issue. Nearly one quarter of 500 biggest cities in the world are facing this problem. ThinkTron Ltd. is devoted to smart water management, and it differs from the former water manage- ment system with low-cost and low-power sensor systems, larger scale and more spots of installments, which could results in real-time big data collecting.
